Tricking - anyone local (Brighton) up for lending a hand?

Tue Jun 09, 2015 12:15 pm

Hi all,

I am trying my hand at tricking for the first time and I think I might learn faster with a little guidance from someone. Is there anyone down this way with the time and the inclination to help? :)

At the moment, I am trying to get an old Flexifoil Scorpion to trick - apparently it can but I just don't have the skills.

Thanks!
Jon

Cool, yup, we will be there! Bringing my wife and kid at the least. Nothing like learning something new in front of a crowd, haha :)

Could we swap details closer to the time and I'll try to find you once we arrive?

Thanks!

The usual place to find the trick flyers at Brighton Kite Fest is around the NE corner of the arena. There's never much room to fly and the wind is always crap, but we love it! ;-)

Probably - it'll be the only one this year I think. I'm not even going to Streatham (I'll be away). Be good to see some old faces.
